Hi! My favorite creation of the week so far, is this Mookaite necklace. I handwrapped various shades of this stone together with sterling silver wire and added a Mookaite carved petal pendant to finish it off. I got Amelia's opinion on this one. I asked her if I should leave it bright sterling or oxidize it. She suggested oxidation. I did it and she was right!

I bought this print from an artist on Etsy. Her shop is Moon Garden Studio. My daughter loves it and we're so excited to get it framed and hung up on her wall. Amelia loves the sea so her room as lots of fishy stuff in it. This will look perfect on the wall.

My Heart Fluttered

Think of something that makes your heart flutter when you see it. This is what happened when I found a vintage gray necklace and put it next to these oxidized sterling silver Eiffel Tower charms. It was great! I took off two of the crystal (or glass, not sure) components, attached them to the charm and voila! These are listed in my Etsy Store right HERE! :)

I have a Breeze!

This may not sound exciting to anyone, but I am SO HAPPY! I finally figured out how to get my century home window screens in! I hae a few bruises and scrapes from the event, but I got 4 screens in! We actually have a breeze! This is my 3rd summer here, pretty pathetic, but I don't care since now I can feel it. Yeah!

Oh... I also created something new today it's a sage green pearl and Swarovski crystal necklace with a heart pendant. I created matching earrings that sold today, but I may be able to make more.

I haven't done a thing in my workroom today. Oh well. On my way to my daughters softball game.

Until tomorrow... :)

I haven't gotten very far...

OK, it's Tuesday and my grand plans are moving ahead very slowly. I've managed to only relist 2 items that sold today and stay away from listing more. We'll see if I can make it all day (lol).

This is a ring that I make that is available in my store on Etsy. It's Cherry Quartz handwrapped with oxidized sterling silver wire. It's available in any size to be made just for you!

Construction Week

I have big goals this week! I'm going to try, try, try not to create too many pieces this week in an effort to get my workspace under control. The room that I'm working in was a baby's room with cute pastels, but I need a little more of an inspirational environment. I've ripped out the carpet to find gorgeous large planked wooden floor. It's painted, so I'll just have to sand it and repaint. The next step is filling holes in the walls, paint and shelving. I'll take pictures of my progress.

It's going to be hard not to make new pieces! I have to focus on the longterm plan. :)

Here's a piece that I made over the weeked. I love these colors together. I have a necklace with these colors and matching earrings.
